The Goonies is a 1985 release that follows a group of kids from Astoria, Oregon who try to find a pirate's treasure to save their neighborhood. Starring as the Goonies are; Sean Astin, Corey Feldman, Ke Huy Quan, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen, Kerri Green, and Martha Plimpton. The film grossed $61 million worldwide, and gained a cult following.

Most of the film was shot on location in Astoria, Oregon. Other scenes were constructed at a Hollywood soundstage. One-Eyed Willie's ship was a constructed set, and the actors were banned from seeing the ship until filming in order to get an honest reaction. This plan backfired when the actors were so overwhelmed by the ship that they ruined the shot. The scene that appears in the final film is the second take. After shooting the film, the ship was scrapped as a buyer could not be found. READ MORE - Click Below
